Youth Pride Guide 2011


Who We Are

Youth Pride Alliance, now in its 15th year, was founded in 1996 by Christopher Dyer. Our primary function is the annual production of D.C.’s Youth Pride Day. As a small, all-volunteer run organization, we rely on the support of the community for our programs and events. In addition to Youth Pride Day, we also organize others events for Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Ally youth throughout the year.

Mission Statement

The Youth Pride Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Ally youth empowerment to encourage positive self-development and expression, as well as leadership, while bridging diverse communities and individuals to address issues of visibility, equality, and social justice. We are dedicated to celebrating the dignity and courage of all young people.
